Are you one of those people who buys a diet book, gets excited by the prospect of starting a new diet, then get to the middle of the book and lose interest? Well, you’re not alone. I wish I had a nickel for every person who’s told me some version of that story. In fact, that one problem triggered us to put together Black Book of Secrets, our manual of 61 fat loss techniques, each of which you can learn and apply immediately.
Listen; don’t complicate matters by trying to tackle all these big concepts like going zero carbs, or going through induction phases before you even take a baby step. You’ll likely get frustrated and then stop your journey before you even start.
Keep it nice and simple when you start. Start with conscious eating. That is, take note of what you’re eating and how much. The overall concept that controls your weight loss or gain is the amount of calories you take in against the calories you burn for the day. Work on trimming unnecessary calories from each meal. This is the simplest step you can take. It’s painless, it’s easy to do, and you won’t feel hungry.
The biggest benefit is that you are preparing your mind and body for subsequent, larger steps. Each day, you’ll build more “action muscle”, meaning taking action will get easier and easier. Start a food journal so you can keep details, and you’ll be able to track your progress.
